How is Air Traffic Management contributing to cleaner skies?

Part 1 of “The Technology Challenge” will explore the latest Air Traffic Management innovations and their impact on the environmental footprint of air transport in Europe. 

Part 2 will highlight which innovative technologies are our leading experts most excited about? How can airlines, airport authorities and energy suppliers unite to build the hydrogen ecosystem of tomorrow? and what is the latest on ZEROe and Zephyr

Part 1. Decarbonisation starts now


During the “Technology challenge - Part 1” moment,  you will discover ALBATROSS - a 2 year SESAR project involving major European aviation stakeholders - with the ambition to demonstrate through a series of gate-to-gate live demonstration flights across Europe the feasibility of implementing the most efficient flight in the short term, by combining several innovations: continuous climb & descent operations, flight trajectory optimisation, sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and hybrid Taxibot assistance on the ground.

Part 2. The journey to 2035


The road to sustainable aerospace is taking shape, but now, an entire ecosystem will need to leverage its collective resources to deliver during the 2030s timeframe. As new fuels and technologies emerge to outpace expectations, the winds of change are sweeping across the aerospace industry. Are we ready to go beyond business as usual? 

At the Airbus Summit, ZEROe, the solar-powered Zephyr and sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) will take the spotlight during “The Technology (Part 2)” moment. Some exciting updates will be shared, as well as thought-provoking roundtable discussions.
